SEPTEMBER 15. 1911. 



THE LIST INDIAN CONGRESS 

AT FOR? TOTTEN. N. D. 

This was an Internatial Con- 
gress, as not only the Sioux In- 
dians, but also. Indians of other 
tribes attended and took a lively- 
interest in the proceedings. Dis- 
cussions were held and speeches 
made in five different Indian lan- 
guages. A large delegation of 
Chippeway Catholic Indians 
from Red Lake, Minnesota, 
showed themselves devout and 
earnest christians All the at- 
tending Indians had a lively time 
when the voting took place, to 
decide where the next congress 
should be held. Several places 
were mentioned and received 
some votes, but at last Red Lake 
in Minnesota was chosen by a 
great majority.

HIS RETURN. 

(The same in Sioux on page 4.) 

Father John closed the door of 
his study and sank into a chair 
before the fire. It had been a hard 
day with him, and he was weary, 
body and soul. Without the wind 
shrieked, the storm sobbed. 

'"Daddy wants you."' piped a 
little voice at the young priest's 
side, and he turned startled, to 
find he was not alone. A child, 
a tiny, fair-haired girl had fol- 
lowed him. 

"Daddy is dying," she contin- 
ued fixing a pair of wistful blue 
eyes on his face. "He wants the 
priest." 

'"Who is Daddy, and where is 
he?" asked Father John, roused 
from all languor by the call of 
duty. 

"At No 4, Long's Court, in the 
garret," answered the little one. 

"You are a brave little girl to 
venture out in such a storm. 
What is your name?" 
"Angie," she answered softly." 

"Sit down by the fire, Angie, 
and get warm. I will be ready 
to go with you in a moment," and 
Father John passed into his lit- 
tle chapel to make preparations 
for his sick call. But when he 
reentered the room, the little 
messenger was gone. Anxiously 
he hurried into the street, think- 
ing to find her without, he was 
met with a swirl of wind and 
sleet, in which all trace of his 
tiny visitor was lost, The priest 
struggled on through the storm 
to his goal— a wretched heap of 
rookeries tottering to their fall 
— in one of the lowest purlieus 
of the town. 

''There ain't no dying man 
here," was the surly answer to 
his inquiries at No. 4. 

''That I must see for myself, '" 
said Father John, taking the 
smoking lamp from the wall, and 
pressing up the rotten staircase. 

' 'In the name of God is there 
anyone here?" he asked, as he 
reached the lowpitched dark gar- 
ret under the leaking roof. 

"Aye, aye, cried a feeble voice 
from a pile of rags in the corner. 
"I am here dying — dying alone. 
God be praised, it is priest! Och, 
Father, who was it brought you 
to me in this devil's den?" 

"My poor friend, you forget: — 
you sent your litte child for me." 



SEPTEMBER 15. 1911. 



"My child, is it?" sobbed the 
dying man. "Sure, Father, I 
have no child; me darlin' little 
Angie died six months ago." 

And Father John thought of 
his blue-eyed visitant, and a 
srtange sweet awe thrilled his 
soul. He felt Heaven had been 
very near to him that night.—
